What is Indecent Assault in Texas?

Indecent assault is a fairly new crime in Texas. Prior to September 1, 2019, this offense was known as groping, and it came with fairly relaxed penalties for those convicted. Now, the law has been changed due to Senate Bill 194, which redefines this offense as indecent assault. It also increases the penalty for those convicted, making the law much more strict.
